Seven large handmade glass beads strung on a sterling silver bar and hanging from a handmade sterling chain ensure a unique and eye catching necklace.
A lovely bright green with accents of red and ivory make the beads in this necklace really stand out from the crowd.
I hand make all my own beads one by one by melting glass in a hot torch flame. These beads feature a detailed surface pattern created by adding layer upon layer of dots of coloured glass on top of one another. Although dots of glass are usually circular in shape, I have placed these in close proximity to one another such that a square ‘dot’ is created. The beads have then been etched to create a soft matte finish reminiscent of ceramic and paired with one of my handmade sterling silver chains.
Total length of necklace 47cm
Beads graduate from 19mm to 23mm
NOTE ON PACKAGING I have made the decision not to use branded packaging so as to avoid adding to our recycling and landfill problems. Each piece will be sent in a drawstring cotton bag that can be reused.
The beads are heated in a kiln for many hours to help the glass settle after being melted, this increases their resilience. However they are not unbreakable and although they will withstand some dropping on concrete and stone surfaces may protest if done too much!
Clean with a soft cloth.
The idea for these beads came from the small repetitive patterns used on vintage Tea Dresses. I wanted to create a set of matching beads with a repetitive pattern based around carefully placed dots.
The palette came about from experimenting with different greens and reds until I found a combination I liked. I used ivory coloured glass to highlight the red dots as I found white too harsh.
